"In 1953, a new version of the film was created by Raymond Rohauer, a film distributor and collector. The movie was re-edited with an introduction and music. As of 2013 this version is under copyright, as Rohauer filed a copyright registration in 1953 and renewed the copyright in 1983."

You'll have to check if this is the version is copyrighted. It may be.

I first saw "The General" in a local art-film house, accompanied by a live organist. My wife gamely tagged along...and ended up leaping from her seat, yelling and cheering and laughing.

Many thanks to the uploader for this one. A tremendous movie...and, at last, a print that does it justice.
